The Legacy of Honor “Patriot Award”

The Patriot Award is presented by Legacy of Honor, Inc, in memory of SSG Justin R. Whiting.  The award is designed to recognize the value and significance of military service to one’s country. It is presented to one member of each high school graduating class (from participating school districts) who have indicated their intention to enlist in the Armed Forces of the United States.

The Patriot Award consists of a certificate and a cash award of $500. The certificate is normally presented by Legacy of Honor representatives at a suitable ceremony during graduation week activities.

If multiple graduating students from a school district have indicated their intent to enlist in military service, school administration officials will select one Patriot Award winner based upon the most well-rounded candidate in terms of 4-year academic performance, athletic participation, extra-curricular activities, and good citizenship.
